imdb wants you to step up your game

If you like this title, we also recommend… Cidade de Deus (2002)

Now, both Grosse Pointe Blank and City of God are fine movies, and I did indeed enjoy both of them, but they are also extremely different movies, and I do not need to tax my (admittedly impressive) imagination at all in order to conceive of people who would rather enjoy the former, and flee the theatre screaming less than thirty minutes into the latter.

This part is only here so that there’s more than a single sentence of non-excerpted content in this post. It’s just a little thing I like to do.

    imdb probably has a list of great movies they recommend if their algorithm doesn’t come up with a real solution :-)

    Frankly, I’d much rather have Netflix recommend completely unrelated but similarly good movies (if this is what it’s actually doing) than to do what Tivo does, which is to recommend a bunch of terrible schlock with some tenuous connection (like being in the same genre) to an excellent show I like.
